For many centuries and in many cultures, the animal fable has been popular as a key to understanding ourselves and our neighbour. Using the same light, ironic touch and pin-point accuracy, Waltraud Kirschke has invented modern fables for the nine Enneagram types, based upon the animals traditionally assigned to them. The worst and best aspects of each type are woven amusingly into these eighteen tales. They are delightfully illustrated with line drawings by Dee Lane.
